Orthodontics Give You The Smile You’ve Always Wanted

Many people are unhappy with the straightness of their teeth. They may feel embarrassed when they smile or have an increased number of cavities because they can’t properly brush their teeth. Fortunately, today, the process of getting orthodontics can address these problems. Our services will help to straighten the patient’s teeth, giving them a healthier-looking smile. In addition, it can help them maintain and improve their oral health.

The Process of Getting Orthodontics

Once you’ve decided to get orthodontics, your first step is to reach out to our treatment team. We can provide a consultation and determine whether you are a candidate for braces. Then, our team will design a treatment for you, and provide you with a description of the orthodontic options available for your needs. We offer both traditional braces, ceramic braces, and clear aligner trays.

Once you’ve determined what type of orthodontics you want, the next step is for our team to place the braces. This process requires us to condition the surface of the teeth, which gives us the place where we can place the brackets. Then, we will place the first wire. We will then prime them for the dental cement and place the brackets in pre-determined positions. Once the orthodontics are in place, we adjust them periodically. This adjustment can cause some discomfort at first, but in the end, you’ll have a smile that you’ll love.

When Should You Seek Orthodontic Services

Childhood and teenage years are one of the most important periods in one’s life to regularly see an orthodontist. This is because this is the period in which new teeth are forming and coming through one’s gums. Regular orthodontic services help ensure those new teeth don’t become impacted and cause pain (very common with wisdom teeth). When you choose preventative, proactive orthodontic services, we can make recommendations like braces and retainers to ensure proper tooth growth. Our orthodontist team can also help ensure issues like gum disease are halted in their tracks before they become damaging issues.
